Day 17: A picture of something that has made
a huge impact on your life recently.
My thyroid medicine. In March, I was diagnosed with hypo-thyroidism by
my OBGYN. Now, for the rest of my life, I will have to take a pill
every morning. I've been neglecting to get my thyroid levels re-checked,
so I've been feeling really sluggish lately.
Some of my symptoms are:
- Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
- Coarse, dry hair
- Dry, rough pale skin
- Hair loss
- Cold intolerance (you can't tolerate cold temperatures like those around you)
- Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
- Memory loss
- Abnormal menstrual cycles
- Decreased libido
Unfortunately, I have a lot of these symptoms. I'm just hoping the 7th symptom
doesn't become an issue this winter. I'm already freezing
and it's not even that cold in the apt.
